Need to calculate apriori power/sample size? Check out
Gpower
(it's free).
Link which will allows SPSS users to download the
Legacy Viewer for viewing older SPSS files.

Module 5: Compute (simple)
Create an average of
Recall 1 and Recall 2
Use the Compute Function to recode a Likert response scale item
Use Compute to create a total score of multiple variables.
Module 6: Replace Missing Values
Replace
missing values on the Age variable of ‘ExampleData002.sav'
Multiple Imputation using a version of the EM algorithm
Module 7: Select cases (create a
filter variable).
Select only sophomores
in 'ExampleData002.sav'
Module 8: Merge data files.
Add ‘ExampleData002.sav’
to ‘ExampleData001.sav’ to
add cases
Merge 'ex3reverse.sav' and 'ex3r2.sav' to
add new or additional variables
Restructure data from Long format to Wide format
ExampleData001.sav
ExampleData002.sav
ex3reverse.sav
ex3r2.sav
